Have you tried OpenOffice/LibreOffice?  I have imported doc into OpenOffice, 
saved them in native odt format, then imported that into scribus. The font 
styles and sizes are preserved. The bulleting wasn't handled well (if at all).

Subject: [scribus] Any way to import text with formatting

My Word document is heavily formatted with bold words, font & size changes, etc. 
Right now, I am converting each chapter to .txt, importing into Scribus, then 
comparing the docs side by side to reapply the formatting. 

This is quite tedious and I'm wondering if there's some way it could be easier.
